Words of wisdom

Cobb brings the noise, brings clarity to the confused, gives Colin Powell a well-deserved punch in the snout, and discourses on the question of torture v. harsh interrogation.

Last, and more humorously, he clarifies why some of us can't get our asses out of bed on Sunday to do the church thing. Some of the latter has questionable application outside the black community, but as for most of it, I plead guilty as charged.

There aren't too many things that would motivate me to return to Los Angeles; the last time I was there was 26 years ago, and I was just passing through LAX overnight. One of the things that would get me out there would be a solid opportunity to have a long conversation with Cobb.
